Global Buffered Oxide Etch Market to record 8% growth rate through 2026

June 15, 2020

According to the research report titled ‘Global Buffered Oxide Etch Market Size study, by Type (Conventional Semiconductor Grade, Fine Electronic Grade, Ultra-High Purity Grade), by Application (Silica Etching, Others) and Regional Forecasts 2019-2026’, available with Market Study Report LLC, global buffered oxide etch market generated revenues worth USD 170 million in the year 2018 and is expected to grow with a CAGR of 8% between 2019 and 2026.

Notably, BOE (buffered oxide etch) is a wet etchant primarily used in microfabrication. It is utilized in etching thin silicon dioxide and silicon nitride films. The product is a mixture of hydrofluoric (HF) acid and ammonium fluoride. Distilled HF etches silicon dioxide rapidly for enhanced process control as well as removes photoresist consumed during lithographic patterning.
